About Us – GREEN CREDENTIALS
In 2006 we set out to create something quite unique – serviced offices in a carbon zero business centre. Our vision was to use the latest thinking to create a work environment that was not only pleasant to work in but also has as little impact as possible on the on the local environment and be self-sustaining. We chose the name “The Beehive”, not because the building was previously a Pub or that we enjoyed honey but instead to reflect the power of bees and what they create when they establish a hive.
With super insulation levels, energy efficient heating, low energy lighting, solar PV and Thermal (planned), rainwater harvesting (planned), cycle / bus to work encouraged and a focus on recycling tenants sign up to make a commitment to become “GREENER” when they choose The Beehive we believe we have the bases truly covered.
If having green credentials is important to your business then there is no better place in Huddersfield to run your business from.
We are continually monitoring the energy performance and carbon foot print of our Business Centre. We set annual targets to reduce the amount of carbon we emit per person who uses The Beehive and are always keen to share this information with our tenants and visitors.
